This PDF download book contains four, fifty-minute introductory test papers, each containing 80 questions.

The intention of these introductory papers is to help build children’s confidence through a better understanding of the verbal reasoning question types.

The papers are intended to address the full range of question types that your child will encounter in the 11+ examinations.

It is recommended these introductory papers are worked through before attempting the more challenging 11+ Verbal Reasoning books in this series.
